I have the Baja and love it. Get the Baja you won't be disappointed. You get the ultimate factory tacoma, all covered under warrenty. I was orginally going to get the tx pro and I'm glad I didn't. Plus I have yet to see another Baja on the road and get compliments on the truck all the time.

Baja haters?

Wow, lots of Baja haters in this thread, thats too bad. I have a Red 2012 Baja and I love it.

Gmcaujo, I agree with the guys that if you want to go wheeling, especially if you're going to get into some big rocks and mud, go with the TRD Offroad or better. I had a Sport before and loved it, but the loss of the rear locker left me in a tough spot a couple of times.

I went with the Baja because there is a lot of very rough open terrain here in Texas and I love zipping across bumps the size of a Scion at 40+ MPH. Try that in your TRD Offroad.... haters.

You get the extra lift in the rear from an extra leaf in the spring, and in the front from the adjustable shock and larger coil. No spacers. The suspension is tuned for fast tracking across rough terrain, but the truck does equally as well in the mud, rocks, sand, etc.... and the additional wheel travel doesnt hurt.

Now you should know that the graphics are tacky.... but they peel off really easy. You should also know that the TRD exhaust is louder than stock and frankly a little annoying at first. However, it does mellow out after you get some mileage on the truck and probably does give you a little more HP, but not a lot. Lastly are the wheels. They are awesome wheels, but not true beadlocks, they are beadlock styled. That said, the beadlock styled rings do a great job as rock rings to protect the painted surface of the wheel, so they do serve a purpose other than looking nice.

All that said, I think you would be very happy with a TRD Offroad OR a Baja, they are both fantastic trucks. Just depends on what you like, what you're going to do with it, and how much aftermarket $$$ you want to put into it.

Nothing wrong with the Baja if you like it go for it. Its fine if you're absolutely against modding. Although its like a normal OR would be fine for what you're using it for. The $5k savings would pay for your supercharger.

Personally I like the gradual build because I've found anything I've said I'm going to keep stock I've modded in some way anyway. I said I was gonna keep the Taco stock but I've spent about what you would to get the Baja package extra. That 5k got me wheels, tires, lift, UCA's, satoshi grille, exhaust, tint, stereo, and whatever other misc stuff I can't think of.

I went with the tx pro and love it. I saw a baja after purchasing mine. Between the baja and the pro i have only seen 1 of each. I dont plan on doing shocks or coils for a little while so the upgrade was perfect for me. I do want to do trail armor and get my lift first. But all in all i dont regret spending the extra. Plus i got it for a smoking deal. I say go for it if you want it. Its your truck and your wallet.

We are both right, my apologies for wording it the way I did. A more constructive answer would have been better.



Get the baja if it's what you want. Great truck still a toyota and will last for years!

4x4 trd or. Use the 4000
Icon coilovers=1000
Tires=1000
Uca =500 (optional)
Rear leaf pack with shocks=1000 (if you offroad a lot then required) If not just install bilstein 5100 shocks.
$500 savings, full bolt on and will blow the doors off the baja edition.

Ugh. Why so much hate?

I've worked in off-road, and I've modded my share of personal and customer vehicles. I came to the point where "modding" has lost it's luster. One of the reasons I opted for the Tacoma TX Baja.

Anyways, there are only 2 Trucks on the market that I know of that come with a 60mm Front Strut and a Remote Resi out back from the Factory. TRD and Bilstein worked side by side on there shocks, and if you know anything about Bilstein you know the R&D they put into each shock is unreal.

60mm, Call it a 2.25" or 2.5" Coilover.

I can honestly say the performance of this truck against my 2009 with Fox 2.5" Remote Resi Coilovers and Bilstein 5100's, the Baja wins. Its balanced and handles outstanding.

I couldn't be happier.

Now if they would give the Tundra this type of attention... I'd be at the TX plant in a tent feverishly mast- well, waiting for my truck.

Bottom line.

Want to do it youself, make your own? TRD Off-Road.
If you don't and want to play it safe. TRD TX Baja.

I looked at a "Baja" 2 weeks ago at a truck show at a Toyota dealer.

40k sticker price made me LMAO.

5K was for "custom" suspension, wheels, sticker, and tires I would never put on my truck = a total waste of money TO ME.

If you like paying dealership prices for shocks you could put on in a day for MUCH less money, tires I personally think are poop, wheels I personally think are ugly, and a graphic package that I think is for teenagers with ADD then go for it.

Otherwise just grab a SR5 and do that mods yourself. Anyone telling you you can't do it cheaper and better on your own is in fantasy land.

39 Grand is not too bad for a baja edition, considering they now have a limited edition for 37k thats just a gussied up SR-5 with leather. After being a owner of a Sport and a Off Road, I rather the sport for the appearance package over the locker.

If I was you, buy an off road supercharge it and add bilsteins all around and set them to 1.75 up front. Then maybe buy some new rubber. Seems like a good set up to me for what you want.
